When T started school I changed over to using an academic diary, instead of the traditional January to December variety.
It was an easier way to keep track of dates for each of the different terms and holidays as the year became carved up in portions of, approximately, six weeks.
As I started working in a school last December these cycles have even more relevance to us.
Whilst out at the weekend I spotted a range of academic diaries in The Works and bought a pretty peppermint coloured one.
Next job is to find a quiet hour so I can fill it in.
I get quite excited about that.
I feel the same way when I start a new notebook.
One special date I can add is a trip to the theatre in October for me, G and S. We have booked to see Coppelia, it will be the first ballet experience for us all.
It's always good to have good things to look forward to.
